These round boxes are painted with craft paint to look like drums.
Guide step 1
Step 1.
Paint a golden border on the edge of the lid and on the bottom and top of the box - it's important to paint the borders on the top and bottom a bit wider than the height of the lid (the border doesn't need to be straight as it'll be corrected with masking tape in the next steps).
Guide step 2
Step 2.
Put the lid on top of the box and carefully draw a line along the lid with a pencil. Then, put the lid on the bottom of the box and draw a line here, too.
Guide step 3
Step 3.
Place two pieces of masking tape around the box so that they follow the pencil line at the top and bottom of the box. It's very important to place the masking tape as close to the line as possible for the neatest result.
Guide step 4
Step 4.
To ensure that the paint doesn't seep through to the golden border hidden below the masking tape, you can seal the area by painting a wide coat of gold paint where the tape and the box meet (see the photo).
Guide step 5
Step 5.
Now paint the entire box with white craft paint and leave to dry. Apply 2-3 coats to ensure that the white paint covers the gold paint.
Guide step 6
Step 6.
Print the template which is available as a separate PDF for this idea. Cut out the template that fits the size of your box. Put the template triangle along the line of the tape and draw the outline of the triangle onto the box with a pencil. Draw triangles side by side around the entire box.
Guide step 7
Step 7.
Attach two pieces of masking tape diagonally along the pencil lines to create a triangle against the bottom. Place masking tape on every other triangle around the box.
Guide step 8
Step 8.
Seal the tape with gold paint along the golden border and white paint along the diagonal borders (see the photo).
Guide step 9
Step 9.
Apply red paint inside every other triangle. You may apply two coats for better coverage.
Guide step 10
Step 10.
When the paint is completely dry, carefully remove the six pieces of angled masking tape around each triangle.
Guide step 11
Step 11.
Now attach masking tape around the remaining three triangles and repeat steps 8-10.
Guide step 12
Step 12.
Carefully peel off the tape around the golden edge at the top and bottom of the box.
Guide step 13
Step 13.
A tip: Draw along the top box lid edge with a Plus Color marker in the same matching gold colour as the Plus Color craft paint for a completely straight edge.
